Abigail Serial Casting

Abigail just completed a series of 2 cast to help with stretching her heel cord and improve range of motion. She did very well. Abigail is such a little trooper...never complaining! She gained a tremendous amount of stretch in her foot and is able to keep her left foot flat when walking/standing. The problem now is the leg length difference of about 1/2-3/4 inch. This difference causes Abigail to be off balance and eventually walk on her tiptoe when she is not in her AFO. (foot brace) The goal is to keep her foot flat on the ground and stretch....stretch....stretch daily to maintain the stretch we have gained. The leg difference is in her tibula so we will continue to watch her leg as she grows and just PRAY that God will grow her left leg to catch up with her right. Please continue to keep Abigail in your prayers.
Thank you and God Bless!!

Update on Abigail

Abigail is currently going through serial casting for her left leg. She got her cast on last Thursday March 3 and we just had it changed yesterday March 10. She will wear a series of three different cast and with each weekly cast change the therapist will increase the stretch in her left leg. Her heel cord has increased in tightness so we are hoping to gain more range of motion through the serial casting.
Please keep Abigail in your prayers that this casting works for her left leg and we gain a stretch to help her with her walking and keeping her foot flat on the ground and her foot in her AFO (foot brace).
Thanks and God Bless! Amanda :-)
